“I don’t throw around five stars for a golf course all that easily, but this place is in shockingly good condition. Beautiful parkland course that offers challenges and requires some course management. Extremely hard to muscle out shot lines or cut corners. Play this parkland safe. The bunker sand was reddish, loosely packed and simply delightful, the greens were in superb shape, everything was perfect.”
